Agile Earned Value Project Management

…dogs and cats living together… MASS HYSTERIA! – Dr. Peter Venkman

No, it’s true!? Earned Value Management techniques can work with non-traditional project management methodologies, including Agile, Critical Chain, and Lean PM.

Today at a Sioux Empire PMI Chapter meeting here in Sioux Falls, SD I mentioned to the group that I had written a post on using EVM with Agile, linkinng to a great white paper on the topic.? Well, I tried to find it, and I couldn’t.? Now where did I put that blog post…I know it’s around here somewhere!

At any rate, here’s a new post with the link I promised (just for you Kurt!).? This is the best paper I’ve seen on using Earned Value Management in conjunction with Agile Project Management.? If you are looking for a killer Agile Project Management blog, check out Mike’s Leading Answers blog.? It’s also in the links on the home page.

This paper is very short and sweet, right to the point.? It does a great job of relaying the concepts with a good dash of visuals thrown in.? After you’ve finished reviewing it, post a comment here and let’s discuss!

Update:? Be sure to check out Glen’s comment, where he links us to another great whitepaper, Making Agile Development Work in a Government Contracting Environment.? Thanks a ton Glen!
